Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time. This client/server system is used by employees in our Fort Wayne IN and New York offices. MS Access Solutions and their staff worked with us to develop the necessary specifications and design documents, and then programmed, tested, and implemented the application throughout our organization.

Modifying Object Tab Order
The tab order for the objects on a form is determined by the order in which you add the objects to the form. However, this order isn’t necessarily appropriate for the user. You might need to modify the tab order of the objects on the form. To do so, select Tab Order from the Control Layout group of the Arrange tab. This opens the Tab Order dialog box, shown in Figure 5.16. This dialog box offers two options. Use the Auto Order button to tell Access to set the tab order based on each object’s location in a section on the form. However, if you want to customize the order of the objects, click and drag the gray buttons to the left of the object names listed under the Custom Order heading to specify the objects’ tab order.
You must set the tab order for the objects in each section of the form (that is, Header, Detail, or Footer) separately. To do this, select the appropriate section from the Tab Order dialog box and then set the order of the objects in the section. If your selected form doesn’t have a header or footer, the Form Header and Form Footer sections are unavailable.
Working in Layout View
After you use Quick Create to create a form, Access leaves you in Layout view for that form. Using Layout view, you can work with a form and immediately see the results of your efforts. In other words, instead of having to switch back and forth between Design view and Form view, you can remain in Layout view and look at your live data as you are modifying the design of the form. Most design changes are supported in Layout view.
When you use Quick Create to create a form based on a query, Access automatically names the form with the same name as the query and creates a header containing a label with the query name. You should rename the form to begin with frm and change the caption of the label to a more appropriate caption.
The following are some examples of design changes:
. Dragging a field from the new Field List window onto the new form
. Using the property sheet to change most properties
. Working with grouped controls
. Removing fields from the form
. Adding formatting to the form objects
You can easily switch between views using the View drop-down in the Views group of the Design tab.
Layout view is even supported with the new stacked and tabular layouts. If you prefer to work in Design view, it is still available to you.
